Supporting Education and Talent in the Performing Arts

Are you passionate about the performing arts? Do you believe in the power of education and talent? If so, we invite you to join us in supporting the Mark H Butler Performing Arts Scholarship. Our not-for-profit scholarship fund is dedicated to providing financial assistance and opportunities for growth to talented individuals pursuing a career in the performing arts. At the Mark H Butler Performing Arts Scholarship, we believe that education is the key to unlocking one's full potential. We understand that pursuing a career in the performing arts can be financially challenging, which is why we offer scholarships for performing arts education. Whether you dream of becoming an actor, dancer, musician, or any other performing arts professional, we are here to support you on your journey. One of our main goals is to provide scholarship funds for Black graduates of Swanton High School who are pursuing higher education in the performing arts. We believe in the importance of diversity and representation in the arts, and we want to ensure that talented individuals from all backgrounds have the opportunity to pursue their dreams. Our scholarship fund is named after Mark H. Butler, a graduate of SHS who has left a lasting impact on the performing arts community. Mark's dedication and passion for the arts serve as an inspiration to us all. By supporting our scholarship fund, you are not only honoring Mark's legacy but also helping to create a brighter future for aspiring performers. To raise funds for our scholarship program, we are organizing a fundraising event on February 17, 2024, at Swanton High School. This event will feature performances by the Swanton High School Jazz Band and the University of Toledo Jazz Ensemble with Ellie Martin. It will be a night filled with incredible music and talent, all in support of education and the performing arts. If you are unable to attend the event but still want to contribute, you can make a donation directly to our scholarship fund. Every dollar counts and will make a difference in the lives of aspiring performers. Your support will help us provide financial assistance, mentorship, and opportunities for growth to talented individuals who may not have the means to pursue their dreams otherwise. Together, let's support education and talent in the performing arts. Join us in making a difference and empowering the next generation of performers. Together, we can create a world where everyone has the opportunity to shine on stage and share their gifts with the world.
